Who should attend courses?

Newcomers to the standards arena will benefit from introductory courses that illustrate the value of participating in the standards and conformity assessment process.

Seasoned members of the standards community will learn a variety of specialized techniques to assist in successfully influencing standards activities and maximizing the benefits of participation.

Everyone who attends ANSI courses will walk away with a greater understanding of the role that standards play in the global economy, U.S. competitiveness, health, safety, the environment, and the relationship between standards and the private and public sectors.

Public sessions of ANSI courses are offered at the Institute’s offices in New York City and Washington, DC as well as other locations around the U.S.


StandardsLearn.org is your premier online source for standards and conformity assessment education. Easy-to-use educational tools address the full range of standards activities, and the asynchronous (self-paced) educational model allows you to learn at your own speed and convenience. All of the courses and resources are free and provided by ANSI as a public service.

The ANSI Committee on Education oversees all Institute initiatives related to standards and conformity assessment education and outreach, including implementation of the education-related aspects of Strategic Initiative 10 of the United States Standards Strategy (USSS). The committee is working with the entire standards and conformity assessment community to introduce the importance of standards to the academic community and to the public at large.

ANSI’s University Outreach initiative promotes the incorporation of standards-related information into the curriculum of colleges, universities, and high schools.
